wikileaks

It was true that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange had his pre-arrest breakfast in Wanstead, as Wansteadium reported last week. Mark Stephens, Assange’s lawyer, told the Wanstead Guardian that he and his client went to the Bungalow Cafe on Spratt Hall Road, rather shocking some builders (and at least one PR man, our source, tweeter @maxdaviespr).

Stephens, who has lived in Wanstead for 36 years, told the paper he believed his house was under surveillance, believing it was an attempt by someone to try to scare him. (Unusually, there is no link to the story in the online version of the Wanstead Guardian.)
